Engaged scholarship is urgently needed to build a better world.
Our Center is part of a movement to focus scholars on research that addresses climate change, racial and gender justice, poverty, and social exclusion. We follow a bottom-up strategy by supporting scholars whose dissertations are models of engaged research. Our fellows collaborate with activists, think tanks, and legislators to shape public policy.
CES seeks to build a diverse community of engaged scholars who work with social movements to strengthen democracy.
